When will you send me my prize fri$ from last contest? Can you just deduct fri$5 from it for this one for me? Thanks.

Sorry already sent!

You'll have to send it to me yourself.

I'll put it on the pot though.
Scorpio
Alright, I think I am missing something here Embarassed

When exactly will the "dashes" for the phrase be given?

No problem. I'll send it to you right now. As I'm new and a little shaky with the donation thing, could you just send me a pm to let me know you got it ok? Thanks!

How large of a pot are we waiting for before we begin?

Same question as scorpio from my side too...
Please edit your first post and put when the Phrase will be released.

Kudos!

Is 5 $FIH now, I will have to give you three more $ FRIH. I will send now.

Update: Contest started! The phrase updated with guesses will likely always be on the last page of the thread.

This one is a movie quote.

Code:
_ _ _ _ _ _   _ _ _ _ _ _ _   _ _ _   _ _ _ _ _ _ _   _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _!


Shorter, but no two letters will make the entire phrase obvious this time.
chizeled
So how do we do this, do I say e and then you put an e in?

Some rules I remember I posted in the last thread:

We start when dwcnps thinks we have enough people. As of right now we do not have enough people.

There will be rounds of guessing, likely going to end up one round = one day.

Each person can only guess one letter (or word or the entire phrase) per round.

Guessing is only allowed AFTER the participant has paid the Frih$5 entry fee. The fee is one time per phrase, meaning the next contest will require an additional entry fee to participate.

Note I changed this post to say only ONE WORD per round, not multiple words (unless the entire phrase is being guessed).
chizeled
I donted so, when we are ready to go I will be ready! Thanks for clearifying those rules with me.

Guessing is only allowed AFTER the participant has paid the Frih$2 entry fee. The fee is one time per phrase, meaning the next contest will require an additional entry fee (again Frih$2) to participate.


Could you please indicate on the first post, the name of the participants?
dwcnps
Done, look at the first post.

How many people total to have a contest?

So the phrase this time is something one of the characters actually says in the movie? Can you give us a hint about the movie? Like, say, it was released sometime in the 1990s or something like that...or it is a comedy, adventure or suspense?

Thanks!
SNES350
I made a mistake in my last post (which I have already corrected): I wrote Frih$2 is the entry fee, but it is Frih$5 this time, as stated in the first post of the topic.

The phrase is from a comedy movie. That is the only hint I will give, as I actually don't know much about the movie. I have not even seen the entire movie actually, but this is a fairly well-known quote among my friends, so I assume others will know it also.
dwcnps
I think the pot will need to be a bit higher so we'll wait.

I'll advertise it on my sig, what about you SNES350?
SNES350
I did, but it seems that since I didn't have a signature before, it isn't retroactive.

I've decided to change what I posted before; you may only guess ONE WORD per round, not multiple words as previously posted.

This of course only applies if you are guessing a word, and not just a letter or the entire phrase.

So guessing is allowed for one letter, one word, or the entire phrase, per person per round.
dwcnps
Added 20frih$ to the pot.
Scorpio
When could we start?

(sorry about getting impatient)
squirrelmaster

dwncps is managing the pot.

Are we going to wait more or start now?

Also, the list is still the same as before the last Frih$20 were added.
squirrelmaster
OK i donated 10FRIH$ to dwcnps
dwcnps
squirrelmaster wrote:
OK i donated 10FRIH$ to dwcnps


Ok, got it.

I think we can start now.

Please wait for SNES350 to give the out the phrase...

Until then anyone who has not can still donate but only until SNES350 has given the phrase.

Thankyou...
chizeled
Is it 10 $FRIS now? Did I donate enough?
mistuh griddlez
i'm gonna donate some more! I donated it to you dwcnps.
dwcnps
Got the 20frih$ Wink .
chizeled
Did I post enough? Do I need to post more? Just wondering...I didn't hear the last time. Can someone let me know.

If you gave Frih$5 or more, then you gave enough.

The pot is big enough; we can start now. Round 1 of guessing has begun; you may guess one time today; I will update the phrase tomorrow when I get the chance. Today's round will end in about 10 hours and 30 minutes, at midnight EST; tomorrow's will end 24 hours after today's ends, at midnight EST again.

The next round of guessing will start immediately at midnight EST, but I don't recommend guessing before I update the phrase. I will likely update very close to midnight (end of this round or early hours of next round) or 8-9 hours into tomorrow's round, when I wake up.

Can I guess an e?

can i guess an h?
SNES350
Code:
_ _ _ _ _ _   e _ _ e _ _ _   _ h e   _ _ _ _ _ _ h   _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _!


Guessed letters: e, h

I'm ending the first round right now; round two starts now also, so all who joined have one guess for the next 24 hours and 40 minutes or so (as of this post it is 11:20 PM EST).
chizeled
Can I guess the letter t?
squirrelmaster
going with the letter I?
seastatue
I would like an "O".
SNES350
Code:
_ o _ o _ _   e _ _ e _ t _   t h e   _ _ _ _ i _ h   I _ _ _ i _ i _ i _ _!


Guessed letters: e, h, t, i, o

About midnight EST as I'm posting this, so next round starts now.
squirrelmaster
now i shall guess the letter 's'
seastatue
I am assuming that that's a uc "I" as the first letter of the last word. Hope I am right, cause I'm going to take a guess at the phrase.

One of the funniest moments from Monty Python is the one on the Spanish Inquisition. So funny that is has been referenced in other people's comedies and online games.

My guess is:

"Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!"

--Michael Palin said it the first time, I think, in Monty Python's Flying Circus

He got it. I thought about using all lowercase letters, but that could be considered deceptive, since those words should be capitalized.

Thanks for letting me know, SNE. When we play hangman around here, we use proper nouns too. If you don't uc something that should be uc, you get accused of cheating. Plus it's good to have them as a change up. The uc didn't give it to me, it only helped a little.

So I will get like fri$80 for winning?

You get 75% of the Frih$~83 pot. Frih$62.1 or something like that.

i sincerely thought it was that, except for this

Code:
_ o _ o _ _   e _ _ e _ t _   t h e   _ _ _ _ i _ h   I _ _ _ i _ i _ i _ _!
Guessed letters: e, h, t, i, o

you did not post all the letters that were guessed you said that t and o were all guessed therefore they cannot be in it but they are, you should have done
Code:
_ o _ o _ _   e _ _ e _ t _   t h e   _ _ _ _ i _ h   I _ _ _ i _ i t i o _ !

oh well no hard feelings, but next time can you double check it? Very Happy

I just wrote an entire paragraph not seeing the problem, but I after reviewing it again I see it. I did try going through it again but I still didn't catch that at the time. Sorry for the mistake.

Are we going to play another round? If so, you can deduct the entry fee from my winnings.

I have not received my prize Frih$ yet.

Thanks.

Nice job seastatue. I forgot to check back here!!! So I never guessed oh well....anyway when you do another round let me know!!!
SNES350
I don't know where dwcnps is and he has the Frih$ for the contest. If he doesn't return soon I may just start another one myself, or if anyone else is up to it they are welcome to.

I'm here SNES350, just been busy for a week or so, here's the phrase because SNES350 hasn't gave it yet so I guess I will.

Code:

_ _ _ _ _ _    _ _ _ _ _ _ _    _ _ _    _ _ _ _ _ _ _    _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _!


The space between the words are represented by four spaces and the space between the letters are represented by a single space, telling you just in case.

The second hangman contest was won by seastatue in case you missed that. There were two or three days of guessing, I made a mistake in there somewhere, and he got it despite that. My long post above contains the completed phrase for the second contest.

I'll let you when the next one is starting, I just have to do some calculations while SNES350 makes the new phrase.



Thankyou...
